Publisher's Summary

When a young girl is found dead in the mountains outside Timber Creek, lifelong resident Officer Mattie Cobb and her partner, K-9 police dog Robo, are assigned to the case that has rocked the small Colorado town.
With the help of Cole Walker, a local veterinarian and single father, Mattie and Robo must track down the truth before it claims another victim. But the more Mattie investigates, the more she realizes how many secrets her town holds. And the key may be Cole's daughter, who knows more than she's saying. The murder was just the beginning, and if Mattie isn't careful, she and Robo could be next.
Suspenseful and smart, Killing Trail is an explosive debut that will have listeners clamoring for more Mattie and Robo for years to come.

Fun but a bit cliched

I enjoyed the novelty of a crime novel with a dog since I am a dog lover, but the book was quite full of stereotypes and cliches. Enjoyable but nothing spectacular.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The ever present "attitude" among the characters was off-putting. Not ever one is an enemy or a person of interest. There should have been more cohesion between a few of the police officers just to create a team affect.


What was most disappointing about Margaret Mizushima’s story?

This story left me flat. I was hopeful the characters would eventually break out of the predictable plodding pace...but alas, it was not to be. The only thing that kept me listening was the police dog. Sorry Robo - I will be turning this book back in and will not be following the series.


How could the performance have been better?

I am not a fan of a female narrator. This book was full of female characters so it was appropriate to have a female voice.


What character would you cut from Killing Trail?

The female crime inspector detective - unnecessarily antagonistic towards everyone!


Any additional comments?

You can't take a muzzle off a dog twice in the same paragraph....just sayin'
